STAMFORD — You can now hire Stamford police officers online for public safety coverage at your special events or commercial projects.
In addition to their regular police work, Stamford officers are able to pick up “extra duty” side jobs such as directing traffic at private construction jobs or monitoring crowds at concerts. Extra duty pay is processed by Stamford’s payroll department, but not directly funded by taxpayers through the budget process unless they are hired for Board of Education or other city events.
Stamford police made $6.4 million in extra duty work in 2013, according to the city’s payroll.
